Women Veterans ROCK! hosted members of The Women Veterans 2020 Delegation from all around the Mid-Atlantic Region on March 12, 2020. The Delegation's Civic Engagement Briefings; Congressional Briefings; and Women Veterans Caucus provided members of the Delegation with important opportunities to give voice to their concerns with Congressional Leaders on legislation relevant to today's Women Veterans and Military Families.
